Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods.
The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication,” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple. Chanukah begins on the eve of the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev and continues for eight days. On the civil calendar, it generally coincides with the month of December. Chanukah 2022 runs from Dec. 18-Dec. 26
